“Fun expirience for all ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

It was a fun afternoon at this place. The fact you could get so close and personal with the animals was definitely a great experience. There is so much to see and the shows were educational and entertaining. For someone who likes animals it is definitely a place to visit and very easy to get to. About 10 minutes from South beach and downtown Miami.

“Nice little zoo, especially if you're into birds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Visited this quaint little zoo recently. If you love exotic birds, then you'll love this place. If you have kids there are lots of things for them to do here, as well. The best spot, in my opinion, is the manu experience. The little monkeys that roam around freely are adorable to watch and they let you get very close. There are also some lions, tigers, and an elephant. They have a small petting area for the kids. They do several shows throughout the day at differeing locations which I cannot review since I didn't partake in those. I recommend this if you have a couple of hours to spare and are into wildife.

“A geat surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

We went here on the recommendation of the hotel conciergeto kill some time before we could check in, and it was a great surprise. We arrived just as it opened, so we had the park to ourselves for the hour or so. We walked around, fed the parrots and paid $5 extra to hand feed the kangaroos (which was my children's favorite part of the day). We timed it so that we could see all the shows and really enjoyed them. Some of the delivery of the information was a bit corny, but the animals themselves were really cool to see. This was a great place to visit for about 3 hours, and we would certainly go again!

“Blew me away!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

I've been to Jungle Island many times, but for whatever reason, this past summer the park completely blew me away. It was awesome. Me and my friend touched and fed more different species of animals than I can count on one hand. Parrots, gators, snakes, monkeys, and flamingos are the ones I can remember. If you are a Florida resident and your child makes the winners circle for good grades (the little cardboard paper they hand out at the end of the year with the coupons), this place is really, really affordable.

“Jungle Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

My daughter is only 17 months old she loves animals. As a family we had an amazing time. She was able to feed and pet Kangaroos, baby goats, feed birds and other animals. She loved and sat through the shows which is amazing for her. We took a VIP tour that really catered to her and her favorite animals. The staff was very knowledgable and friendly. I liked that the majority of the park was covered. This was the most interactive place we have ever been too. It is great for all ages. We bought annual passes so we can go back again.
